Auto Accident Injuries In South Carolina
A personal type of injury can occur in a variety of ways. When that injury is caused by the fault of someone else, those who suffer are entitled to compensation. This applies to an array of areas, which most commonly occurs in auto accidents. One person is pretty much always responsible for a car crash and that person can be held liable for his/her actions. There are a number of reasons that can cause this type of injury and they are as follows:
- Driver Fatigue
- Careless Driving
- Texting while driving
- Tired driving
- Driving under the influence
Any case that involves a car accident has to consider the fact that there is going to have to be interaction and negotiation with insurance companies. Claims can be filed against responsible parties who may be underinsured or even uninsured. There is a specific process for filing these insurance claims as they are a bit different than filing a claim against a motorist who is insured.
LEIP Law has a long history of dealing with all different types of insurance companies. That has allowed our team of attorneys to get to know the negotiation and litigation process that is involved in these types of situations. We can advise our clients on the most appropriate time to settle and when to put our foot down and demand more compensation.
No matter what type of injury you incur, the aftereffects are relatively similar. There is often a period of healing up which can involve various levels of pain and suffering. Then, there is the rehabilitation phase which can be costly and extensive. Some injuries can force people out of work and that can take a toll on their quality of life, as well as the ability to keep up with their bills. When you hire a personal injury lawyer from LEIP Law, we will make sure to fight for all your injury expenses, which can include but are not limited to the following:
- Physical therapy
- Medical and hospital bills

Negotiating your settlement
Most cases will not wind up going to litigation as insurance companies will look to settle. However, that does not mean you have to settle for anything less than you rightfully deserve. A settlement negotiation is not always completed in one sitting as they could span days, weeks or even months. Wat LEIP Law, we will provide you with an attorney that will step in and negotiate your claim so that it results in the most favorable outcome.
Insurance companies are looking to settle for far less than what they should rightfully pay out to victims. That’s why it’s important to have a trusted attorney by your side so that you can get the most possible compensation from your injury claim. LEIP Law is staffed with injury lawyers who know just who to maneuver through this process.

Workers’ Compensation Attorney
When you sustain some type of injury at your place of employment, there is a high likelihood that you could receive workers’ compensation. This is a quite common occurrence which is why workers’ compensation laws have been passed to protect employees in all professions. An experienced attorney at LEIP Law will help you through your workers’ compensation claim as there are a lot of details involved throughout this process. Workers’ compensation claims are often the result of the following injuries sustained in the workplace:
- Traumatic incident – This involves a one-time act that could lead to injuries or disabilities. It could occur in the form of a construction accident, slip and fall, or even an accident with tools. The result of the incident leaves a worker unable to perform their job duties and may also cause a great deal of pain and suffering.
- Occupational incident – This type of injury can occur over the course of time. It could be related to repetitive stress which could be caused by conditions in a building such as asbestos. It could also involve something like carpal tunnel syndrome or other types of drawn-out occupational injuries that develop over time.
